Sequans, Sasken Collaborate on LTE IoT Devices
Monday, May 07, 2018 | Comments

Long Term Evolution (LTE) chipmaker Sequans Communications and Sasken Technologies, a global provider of product engineering, announced a collaboration to bring new LTE devices based on Sequans’ platforms to several vertical markets.

These devices include narrowband LTE for internet of things (IoT) devices such as wearables, trackers and sensors, as well as broadband LTE devices such as customer premise equipment (CPE) and routers. Sequans and Sasken have been working together to optimize their technologies to address new markets with customized features and functionalities.

“Our collaboration with Sequans is based on the development of 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project)-compliant devices, but we are adapting our technologies to extend our market reach,” said Ajit Singh, senior vice president, Sasken. “We are customizing our Sequans-based solutions to adapt to non-3GPP requirements, such as to cover non-3GPP frequencies, to extend transmit output power, to add security and to improve operation in challenging environments where additional speed or lower latency is required. Sasken continues to invest in solutions in the areas of private networks such as railways, public safety and satellite communications by leveraging the knowledge and experience of Sequans platforms built on 3GPP technologies.”

Several types of CPE devices, with various form factors, especially around the internal/external antennas subsystem, are under design and qualification phase to address various challenging environments. These devices will be deployed in all geographic regions.
